k9sarky The blink speed is my problem. I recently relocated the rear signals and used after market signals. They came with type 67 bulbs and cause all the signals to blink too fast. I believe if I swap out to a variable load flasher it may correct the problem.
I had the same issue with my truck when towing, adding the trailer signals would cause them to blink faster, replacing the oem flasher with a variable load flasher cured it.

From what I've read here a 3 prong automotive flasher won't work, so is a 2 prong my only fix?

Ron AutoZone FL34 or EP34 flasher. $9.99. Since it mounts upside down, run a thin bead of sealer around the edge to keep water out.

k9sarky Is there a reason not to use a 2 prong replacement permanently?

As for your high beam issue, I refuse to mislead; I do not know. Someone should chime in shortly. All I know about my headlight is when I manually switch it to high beam, it like.. turns off the top or bottom of the lamp and turns on the other half resulting in brighter, wider light, and vice versa. For all I know, I may be riding with a defective lamp. Be safe.
Thanks for the input, i got the bike about 2 months ago and ive'd never had a vulcan before but i love it, i'm just trying to work out the kinks and make it as safe to ride as possible. I'm going to a local dealer to see if they have the part on site before buying it online.

Would you be able to give me the part number to make sure i buy the right one online?

As for your headlight, it may be that: our headlights are brighter during higher rpms (like when the choke is on during warm-ups) and should dim when the choke is taken off (lower rpms). This is because the charging system kicks in at about 2-3k rpms; giving more power to the batt.. It is normal for the headlight to brighten with higher rpms. (it's also a good indication that your charging system is working). What would be odd is if your headlight automatically goes from the low beam filament bulb, to the high? Ride safe.
the flasher i got from advance was a three prong - i bought it based on what i read in the forums - i'll get the specific flasher online though to see if that does anything.

It's good to know my charging system is working.

My high beam indicator will stay on along with the headlamp even when the switch is not on high is that part of what you mentioned?
